A case of intra-articular fasciitis in the elbow joint
Nodular fasciitis is a benign myofibroblastic proliferation arising from the fascia. Until now, there have been only two reported cases of intra-articular nodular fasciitis in the elbow joint.

International Journal of surgery case reports presents a case of a 19-year-old woman with a 3-month history of pain in the left elbow. Contrast-enhanced T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed an intra-articular lobulated mass on the anterior portion of the elbow joint, with accompanying effusion. The patient subsequently underwent arthroscopic excision of the mass. Histologically, intra-articular nodular fasciitis was the final diagnosis. At the most recent follow-up, 20 months after surgery, the patient had no subjective symptoms, including pain. The final MRI findings showed no tumor recurrence.
